5.0 out of 5 stars A Dynamic Box Set. 8 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
As a child of the early 50's, the upsurge of Eric Clapton's career were a huge part of my youth. A friend had a reel-to-reel tape of '5 Live Yardbirds' which we played to death, and on holiday with parents and a 'holiday treat' in store, I chose the 'Bluesbreakers' 'Beano' album. So at the right age for what Clapton did next, I was there, ready and waiting for Cream.
On this box set we have everything, plus a few tracks we didn't know existed back then and would have no doubt robbed grandmother to get hold of. So here you have the 'Fresh Cream' album, 'Disraeli Gears,' and an extra of the track Jack Bruce has always been so fickle about, 'Hey Lawdy Mama,' which became 'Strange Brew.' The studio tracks from the 'Wheels Of Fire' double album follow, plus the 'Anyone For Tennis' single. Something of a treasure trove fills this CD with a fantastic array of demo versions no Cream fan would want to be without; including 'The Weird Of Hermiston' and 'The Clearout,' which Jack later re-recorded for his 'Songs For A Taylor' album. 'The Clearout,' so legend has it, was the last studio song the band recorded together; and there's a 1 minute Falstaff beer commercial jingle they did for a Scandinavian TV advert as if to prove all their songs didn't have to run to the 20 minute mark!
Discs 3 & 4 are live tracks taken from 'Wheels Of Fire,' 'Live Cream,' and 'Live Cream Volume II,' and if you find these too long and tedious then you're obviously far too young to appreciate everything Cream were about - they are magnificent!
The box set itself is more like a hard backed book with 2 CD's inside either cover, and a massive booklet with to-die-for pictures and an essay by Cream/Jimi Hendrix main-man, John McDermott. The cover is the same as 'Disraeli Gears' with a different title, and anyone with an interest in this superb band and the history surrounding both them and their era of magnificence will be justly proud to own this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The (almost) Complete Cream 29 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
"There was something wrong with the Cream," writes Joe Carducci in his magisterial-yet-snotty "Rock and the Pop Narcotic", "that has to do with the word mundane." Carducci's book is maybe the single best book ever written about rock music qua Rock music as a form, and his judgments are hard to quarrel with (order it now, Amazonians!). Yes, they were the "original" power trio, which is another way of saying that the Jimi Hendrix Experience were better. Yes, they brought improvisation to the masses, which was great in some ways and awful in others. Yes, they were arguably the first supergroup. So like, fab. How the world needed supergroups.
And yet, they were bloody brilliant. I was a deeply gawky teenager when I first listened to this stuff in the early 80s, a time when nobody - but nobody! - of my age group was listening to anything made before 1977, with the possible exception of the Doors. (And if you liked the Doors that meant that you were probably into D*R*U*G*S. If you liked Cream, all it meant was that you were into weird obscure bands from the 60s.) This set contains almost everything they ever recorded - complete versions of the doomy, bluesy first album, the purple-hazy second album, the gloriously sui generis third album and the oddly Beatleoid fourth album, plus all the live cuts ever officially released, with the exception of the "Goodbye" live version of "Politician" - which , to be honest, I'm not missing. Get this and the startlingly rocking "BBC Sessions" and you have all the Cream any sensible person needs.
For anyone who wasn't around at the time, Cream's reputation has been forever posthumous, and has existed in the shadow of the mighty Jimi.

5.0 out of 5 stars The essential Cream Collection 26 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
I was delighted to find this when it was released. At last I don't have to do battle with a record deck and have many added extras not available on my vinyl collection. What a pity that the "Goodbye" version of Politician was dropped. Personally I would have preferred the original running order, having got so used to hearing things in a certain order for over 30 years. A pity too that odd snippets were cut - like Clapoton saying "Right you are then" before launching into Steppin' Out. But these are mainly minor quibbles.

The evolution of Cream from blues purists to prog-rock pioneers, in all its magnificent detail. Superb musicianship, brilliant songwriting, sympathetic production, magnificent live showmanship -- it's all here. The studio discs cover all their live studio output (with some demos, alternate takes etc) and the live ones cherrypick from a wide selection of material. Hours of fun for anyone with an interest in the evolution of superior guitar rock.
